The Madness Starts Sunday: The Full Lineup

We've had some lineup changes... but this is what we have: 19 adventures that will be individually up for grabs on IndieGoGo starting July 1 (if everything goes well, that'll be just after midnight Finnish time, still the evening of June 30 for you North Americaners). Campaign ends July 30.

I'm planning a full-on publicity blitz for this, with podcast appearances already recorded (and most of the writers getting their own interviews as well), a big banner ad campaign, the works.

The final lineup, in alphabetical order by author:

Escaping Leviathan by Aeron Alfrey
The Seclusium of Orphone by Vincent Baker (art by Cynthia Sheppard)
Strange and Sinister Shores by Johnathan Bingham
Towers Two by Dave Brockie
The Unbegotten Citadel by Monte Cook (art by Eric Lofgren)
The House of Bone and Amber by Kevin Crawford (art by Earl Geier)
Of Unknown Provenance by Michael Curtis (art by Amos Orion Sterns)
Machinations of the Space Princess by James Desborough (art by Satine Phoenix)
Horror Among Thieves by Kelvin Green
We Who Are Lost by Anna Kreider
The Land that Exuded Evil by Cynthia Celeste Miller (art by Rowena Aitken)
Pyre by Richard Pett (art by Michael Syrigos)
I Hate Myself for What I Must Do by Mike Pohjola (art by Joel Sammallahti)
Broodmother Sky Fortress by Jeff Rients (art by Stuart Robertson)
Normal for Norfolk by Juhani Seppälä (art by Rich Longmore)
Poor Blighters by Jeff and Joel Sparks (art by Mark Allen)
The Depths of Paranoia by Jennifer Steen (art by Jason Rainville)
Red in Beak and Claw by Jukka Särkijärvi (art by Jason Rainville)
The Dreaming Plague by Ville "Burger" Vuorela (art by Juha Makkonen)

Teasers for the adventures and bios for the talent and more info on the campaigns can be found here.

In addition, Jez Gordon is signed up to do layout for all the projects (brave, brave man), Jason Rainville, in addition to pulling double adventure duty, will also be doing the special slipcase artwork for the hardcover perk options (a six pieces so all six sides of the package show the same scene, each from a different vantage point...), and Zak S is signed on to do the cover for one of the advanced perk options as well.

This whole thing only works if you want it to, but I have done my best to present something you will want.

Good luck everyone. It's going to be an interesting July.


  1. Yet more crowdfunding? It would be nice to see The God That Crawls & Monolith From Beyond Space and Time before parting with any more cash.

  2. I hear ya (final art for Monolith should be in this weekend, cross fingers, and then things go to press), but due to boring back-end business reasons, it's now or next year for this.

  3. Damn it. Now I'm going to pitch in to all of these.


    Because fuck you, that's why.

  4. Jeff's adventure is a must-buy judging by the title alone!

  5. I'm going to pitch in on couple of these after browsing other works of the authors, some are already on my fave list, because of good quality of the authors work, that's why.

  6. OK, I've jumped aboard for the Jeff Rients, Michael Curtis and Kelvin Green adventures. I'm sorely tempted by many others. Must check my finances.

    Folks out there, how are we going to approach this? No point getting all of them 90% funded. How do we prioritise?
